"Not yet. Dawn...I know you have feelings for Don. I don't blame you, 'cause he's a nice guy. He deserves you. You deserve him. This guy, from your memories of him, seems pretty nice too. And I KNOW you have feelings for him. Don't be mad at me for saying this, but your pretty much putty in the hands of anything that needs to wear a cup when they play a sport. I don't mean that in a bad way. I'm the same way with women, it's just that you have all these mixed emotions for all these men, and I can't tell which one you like the most. You love one, and then another, then you go back to the one you left a long time ago. Dawn, I'm in your brain now...I know this stuff..."
"Look Dawn. You like Eli, I'm not saying you love him. You find him a nice guy, and I don't blame you. Donald does care about you, he just thinks you love me instead and he's to damn stubborn to admit it. I know you care about everything, because you love so many things. It's your job, being the future light spirit and all. Thats what your supposed to do is love. But...some of the love you feel...it's not the kind of love that just says 'I care about you'. Its the 'I want to be with you forever' kind. Its there, and its confusing you. Hell if I know who its all about, but I know I'm one of 'em. But I'm dead...not loveable according to you. Look, I just want to help, and if that means I have to be that nagging voice in the back of your head, then so be it. No matter what, I still love you, regardless of what fate tells us we have to do or whether or not I'm alive. I'll never be happy without you, so I'm here to stay."
It was a long speech, but he got his point across.
"I feel odd saying this-well I don't really feel at all-but maybe you can have both Don AND me. That whole fate things might force the two of you together, but I'm sure not letting you go. I'd be fine with it...but it's up to you. I just want to see you happy."
He looked though her eyes at Eli. He looked pretty confused. She hadn't spoken aloud in a while. Poor guy had no idea who was inside her, or what they were even saying.
